Indian women think innovations are for our betterment

New York, Oct. 20 : A new survey has found that women of all ages from China, Brazil, India and Indonesia believe innovations will drive better education (66 percent), transportation (58 percent), work (57 percent) and healthcare (56 percent).


The survey of 12,000 adults from Brazil, China, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan and the US, was commissioned by "Intel Innovation Barometer," the New York Daily News reported.

The survey also revealed that women in emerging markets may be willing to sacrifice privacy in return for better tech and 86 percent will be willing to install software that tracks their work habits and 77 percent may be happy to use a smart toilet if it monitored health.

Dr. Genevieve Bell, anthropologist and director of Interaction and Experience Research at Intel Labs, said that women historically become avid users of technology when that tech solves a problem, and helps people to organize their lives and that of their families as well as aids us in saving time and time shifting.
